Hit the road—experience new music.

NACUSA's Sounds New Chapter is a collaborative group; all our concerts feature multiple composers. Joining the group allows us to rent spaces, afford operational expenses, hire collaborative performers, and keep new music strong in our communities.

Concert Reporting

Sounds New events are recitals with programs. Concert composers can use the programs to report to their respective performing rights organizations, and the National Association of Composers USA licenses/reports all events.

Concert Presenter

Please take advantage of the opportunity to join our team of presenters! Get out there and share new music with the world - right in your own neighborhood.


To participate, membership is required with the National Association of Composers (NACUSA) and the Sounds New Chapter. We encourage and seek out musicians who identify as composers (all ages) - including, but not limited, to writers, performers, educators, conductors, etc. (Organizational and affiliate membership is okay as well). To sign up, please visit: https://www.music-usa.org/nacusa/join.php

Please note, our next batch of calls will begin with a 2022 membership campaign starting on September 1 of 2021.


Be a Part of the Collective

We are committed to diversity and inclusion. We are a great bunch of new music artists and writers. Have your music presented and submit for our calls - music to be presented acousmatically or by performing artists.
